‘Modern Metal with a Progressive twist’
Oozing gargantuan riffs and imposing melodies, Midland metallers ‘Left For Red’ step up with their enthralling debut album All Things Known and Buried’, out through Burning Halo Records on 27th April.
Spawned from an area that surprisingly has Heavy Metal running right through its veins, Left For Red were born in 2011 in the West Midlands, and were nourished by the records of Black Sabbath and Judas Priest. Consisting of LC Decoy (Vocals), Aaron Foy (Guitar), Philip Smith (Guitar), Daniel Carter (Bass) and Rob Hadley (Drums), the five piece began to expand upon their earlier influences and soon immersed themselves into the likes of Strapping Young Lad, Tool and Deftones, before arriving at their very own blend of modern heavy metal.
The past four years have been very productive for the midlanders; they have built up an army of followers and are well renowned for delivering stunning live performances. Sharing stages with the likes of Chimaira, Crowbar, Beholder and Breed 77, and winning Kerrang!’s TNA competition, have all contributed to the band’s growing stock. Added to that, the metal monkeys have nationally released two killer EP’s: ‘Vol 001 – Empty Shell’ and ‘Vol 002 – Mercy Flight’, which both picked up considerable national and widespread online praise including rave reviews from Kerrang!, Big Cheese and Rock Sound.
The five-some surge forward with their first full-length debut album, entitled ‘All Things Known and Buried’, which is unleashed in April 2015. This record etches a line in the sand and it’s poised to mark the band as a true force within the UK metal scene. Stacked with pounding riffery, immersing vocal passages and intricately woven layers, the album offers up nine beefy slabs of cutting edge modern metal. Current single ‘Master Of The Game' is a true statement of intent; so too is the magnificent ‘Reborn’ with its Tool-esque hook that will leave you pining for more. Look out for the raucous metal-heads when they bring the party to your town, as they plan a flurry of shows and festivals this year
